I went there on a week-end on a motorcycle trip and planted the tent on the beach in front of this 30m tall rock. It was beginning of october so no-one around. Beutiful long beach with the sunrise stright in front if you're there to catch it. There is a hotel and a restaurant bar accross the road.

This is a gorgeous beach that is off the beaten path. There are still hordes of people, like anywhere you go in Japan, but the view overlooking the beach is gorgeous. They have a rest area at the top of the hill overlooking this beach....it's worth stopping.

In the middle of the entrance of the beach, there are a few rip off kids are closing to offer to rent very expensive umbrellas , floats, benches, so please ignore them. You can borrow them only 500 Yen each at a... More

Loved the river and the flowers flanking the river. This river eventually leads to the beach. Ocean is blue with some surfers trying to catch a wave.
